Sarah [Muir Galloway]
with the smile of the Lord resting upon you all.I received the copy of the Atlantic Monthly you so kindly sent me for which send you many thanks. Your article on the Yellowstone is very fine indeed. I have wandered with you over the wonderful scenery, and listened to you talk as we went along, every point of interest thought out so beautifully and so clearly. It is the nearest and finest view of that wonderland that I shall enjoy which in this body. I expect, maybe when I get my new one, the Lord will make it possible for me to see many of the glorious works of his hands.I was very sorry to hear that Maggie is so poor I hope that ere long she will take a turn for the better. I am glad that she is enjoying a visit with her girls.We are pretty well here we have been busy getting the yard and things cleaned up.The spring is always a very pleasant time, we are so glad to uncover, and see the blubs and plants sprouting and putting forth their new leaves, and giving promise of another crop of blossoms.02420
